Construction & design
The Painted Hunting Dog enclosure complex had two stages, which comprised of constructing the housing compound and the public viewing platform. As the Painted Hunting Dogs was a new exhibit to the zoo, the designing work was quite challenging. The viewing platform won an award, due to the fact that it was all hand-built and none of the metal fixings were visible to the human eye.
